So I do alot of shipping now with my business, here is what I have learned, from USA to Canada.
-USPS does not have brokerage charges, only pay GST/PST on declared value.
-UPS has high brokerage charges, up to 50+% of the value, get the package marked down to a lower value and if marked as Warrantee repair you may just have to pay GST and PST.
From Canada to the USA.
- Purolator, no brokerage/ taxes if valued at under $100
- Canada post/ USPS, no brokerage or taxes.
What do you guys do when you order large orders valued at $2000 or more, or many different parts from HPF or Champion Toyota?
I bought $1700 worth of stuff from Rrev. Had them ship it up using usps and all I was charged was gst.
